Sioux Falls has officially brought home another prestigious award from the Award Givers of America.

“It’s something that we’re always looking for! Sioux Falls has continued to grow and so has the number of senior citizens not being able to see over their steering wheel, causing them to go 10 miles per hour in most zones. It’s a terrific day for Sioux Falls,” said one statement from City Hall.

City Hall believes the awards coming in lately have been up to expectations and expect many more to be coming in throughout the summer months when people actually leave their houses.

“We know there have been talk of more awards coming in, but we still have to wait for them to be announced. It’s not like us to do business behind closed doors, except constructions deals and stuff like that. Citizens deserve the right to know what’s going on here, and we will gladly put this award in our continually growing trophy case!” said one representative close to the situation.

Citizens could definitely see this award coming and are not happy about it.

“I’m totally behind senior citizens being able to drive themselves around and such. But, you need to be able to at least see over the steering wheel. Raise your seat up or put the wheel down and if you can’t reach the gas pedals, you probably shouldn’t be driving anyway,” said one local citizen we spoke with.

Senior citizens with high steering wheels can usually be found in front of you when you’re in a hurry.
